Speech Pathology Pediatric Feeding Training Program

The UNC Health Care Speech Pathology Pediatric Feeding Training Program is a post-professional endeavor developed to enhance the evaluation and treatment skills of those therapists providing services to children with complex feeding and swallowing disorders. It is structured to include five days of intensive training in acute and non-acute feeding disorders management. A major strength of our program lies in the diverse expertise and interests of our faculty combined with the high clinical volume that occurs within our dedicated and nationally recognized feeding disorders program.
